Under Canvas

 

Under Canvas, a glamping company  https://www.undercanvas.com/  will be submitting an application for a Conditional Use Permit from Klickitat County to build a campsite north of Husum.  The tentative date for submission of the application is late June 2020. The number of camping sites could be up to 90.  Access would be from Oak Ridge Road.

The parcel is 120 acres, currently owned by Weyerhaeuser Company.   Find a map here http://imap.klickitatcounty.org/#15/45.8415/-121.4805/565c22ecdf827df6af49a  property The parcel is located in T4, R10, Sec 12; T4, R11, sec7.  Under Canvas would use the lower half of parcel 04101200002100.

The parcel has river frontage on both sides of the river, and over 20 acres of it is in the management boundary for the Wild & Scenic segment of the river.  SDS owns land adjacent on both north and south along the river.

Representatives from the company attended the April meeting of the Husum/BZ Community Council and the April Friends of the White Salmon board meeting, both via internet.

FWSR voted at our May 2020 board meeting to send a letter to Under Canvas and to Weyerhaeuser Company stating that we do not support the project.  We have done so. Read our letter here:  FWSR.Ltr.UnderCanvasMay2020

Astounding Spring Creek video. At 11 seconds, stop and look at the portion they are planning to clearcut. Earlier harvests on both sides. Look closely and you can see the four streams that run through the heart of this parcel. https://drive.google.com/file/d/1uDpRijMIVOOzcpKWtI-L_2vwDbUBW1Ch/view?usp=sharing
